Situation

Eco-anxiety is a top three concern for children (Newsround 2020). Fun, skills-oriented learning is critical for young people to engage with nature and lead more sustainable lives. Two thirds of teachers want more climate change information (YouGov 2019) yet they often lack the time, confidence and resources. WWW’s research shows that while many schools have declared a climate emergency they don’t know where to start to become more sustainable.

Solution

Let's Celebrate Climate Action is the final event in a larger schools climate action programme, working with 15 schools over 4 terms, providing a series of teacher training sessions, teacher and pupil events, whole-school talks with experts. This finale event will reduce eco-anxiety through pupils sharing positive achievements to tackle climate change and provide an exchange of ideas for further action. Teachers will also share information and resources, leaving the event with more confidence.
